Oh hey there. Yeah, your (second) favorite blogger is still here. It’s just that between April and now things got crazy. I’ve turned half-farmer (more on that later) and there were soccer tournaments, road trips, the World Cup and a family trip through St. Louis-Chicago-Washington, D.C.-New York City, to say nothing of the actual work that keeps the lights on around these parts. The biggest obstacle to jumping back in is always the first post, so let’s get that out of the way right here and get back to business. It’s good to see you again.
